Construction at Energy Works power plant in east Hull.

This amazing footage shows how construction is gathering pace at the Energy Works power plant in Cleveland Street, east Hull.
The £200m scheme is currently the largest development being built in the Humber region, and was designed and developed by Hull-based engineering firm Spencer Group.
The facility will convert domestic and commercial waste into electricity through a process known as “fluidised bed gasification”. Once operational, it will generate enough electricity to power 43,000 homes, and will divert about 250,000 tonnes of waste from landfill each year.
Work began on the derelict site about two years ago. The facility is due to start generating power by April 2018.
Energy Works is owned and will be operated by Energy Works (Hull) Ltd, a company formed by a consortium of international investors.
